Bureau of Land Management Sites in Nevada

Clover Mountains Wilderness, Nevada
In the Clover Mountains Wilderness

A lot of Nevada (something like 95%) is owned by we, the people, through our proxy known as "the federal government" (I wish those folks employed by the federal government saw it more like that - but this is what we've got to work with, now what are we going to do with it?). Huge chunks of land are part of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. Other huge properties are part of "our" military establishment. Still more land is "administered" by the Bureau of Land Management. Don't get me wrong: the National Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management have done some great things in terms of preserving and protecting these vast properties and, in many cases, developing facilities for we, the people, but Area 51 (top secret), the Nellis Air Force Base Bombing Range, the Fallon Naval Air Station, the Army Munitions Depot around Hawthorne, and the Yucca Mountain High-Level Radiation Nuclear Waste Facility?

However, there is still a huge amount of land that we, the people, are allowed access to and on this page I have a few links to pages on this site that are about some of those places: wilderness areas, campgrounds, recreation areas, National Conservation Areas, Back Country Byways, etc.
